Sony wins court case against hacker 'Geohot'

News via CVG

Following a brief delay, a San Francisco court has granted Sony a temporary restraining order against hacker George "Geohot" Hotz - the man who cracked PS3 wide open.

Hotz, along with the help of hacking team 'fail0verflow', kicked off 2011 by revealing to Sony and the rest of the world that they'd finally cracked open the deepest layers of the PS3's defense against running unauthenticated code, leaving the machine wide open to "homebrew" (and piracy).

Hotz is now banned, via the temporary injunction granted this week, from "offering to the public, creating, posting online, marketing, advertising, promoting, installing, distributing, providing, or otherwise trafficking" any information or software to circumvent PS3's security.

He can't "provide links from any website to any other website", or "engage in acts of circumvention of TPMS in the PS3 System to access, obtain, remove, or traffic in copyrighted works," according to PSX-Scene, via Joystiq.

Basically, before he can even say "PS3", a big lawman with a funny wig will lean through his window and say "SHH!"

It has been recently rumoured that Sony will overcome the PS3's recent security breach by shipping new games with unique PC-like serial codes which users will have to input on their consoles to launch titles.

This might stop Piracy but Homebrewers shouldnt be affected if they dont upgrade their firmware.
